Barhale’s new chief executive suggests future focus on rail

Barhale has announced its new chief executive will be Martin Brown.

Joining from Keltbray, Brown will take over from Julian Ripley who has led Barhale on an interim basis since June 2020.

With more than 29 years’ experience Brown has spent much of his career managing rail projects.

He joins Barhale after nine years as managing director of Keltbray’s UK rail infrastructure business.

Prior to that he operated as a project director for Balfour Beatty on a number of high-profile rail and infrastructure projects.

Barhale chairman Dennis Curran said that Brown brings with him extensive industry expertise and outstanding experience of running large civils and infrastructure businesses.

“He has a proven track record of delivering first-class services across the rail and infrastructure sectors,” he said. “In the process he has both added value to client relationships and improved bottom line performance.

“From the outset, Martin felt like a good fit for Barhale. He has a real understanding of and commitment to the Barhale values, our collaborative way of working and our direct delivery model. I am delighted to be welcoming him to the team.”

Martin Brown added: “My priority will be to lead Barhale into its next phase of growth, building on the strength of its family orientated core values and existing client relationships and expanding its operations within the infrastructure sector.”
